Book review

By Hobo Hudson

I finally had a chance to read the book “Small Tales: THE BIG ADVENTURES OF TWO TINY TERRIERS” my friends Foley and Pocket published recently. It’s fantastic, and I now understand why my mom was laughing so loud the whole time she hogged it.

I tell you, I had a hard time getting my paws on the book. First, Mom intercepted it as soon as it arrived, and then, Dad took it over. He promised me to give me the book when he was done reading it, but the cat had other plans. Blondie, one of my kitty sisters, hearing that cats and squirrels play an important role in the book, grabbed it just as Dad handed it to me and took off with it. I would have easily pulled Blondie back by her tail since she is slowing down in her old age, but I stumbled over Wylie, my doggy brother, with my kitty brother Thomas on his heels, both trying to join the chase.  

To make what had turned out to be a long chase short, I was the one hunting down Blondie. I ripped the book out of her claws and locked myself up in my office with it. I poured myself a Folitini, jumped on the chair in the corner and started reading, and I didn’t leave the office until I’d finished the book. It is funny and exciting and contains some awesome ideas only my fellow dogs could come up with.

Something makes me wonder, though. I’m not sure if human readers will get the underlying message of the book that we dogs—and I hate to admit it but also cats and some other critters—are far more advanced in reasoning and thus a much better fit to run the world than humans are. But you’ll have to find out for yourself. Read the book and see what you think. It’s available at amazon.com. To order it, click here.





My name is Hobo Hudson. I’ve always considered myself a terrier mix, and I’m going to leave it at that. I used to share my mom’s website writing about my life, but Mom’s stories somehow got in my way. So, I deemed it more appropriate to open my own blog, which also allows me to engage my siblings in writing posts if I’m running short on time. After all, I’m a busy dog. My mom helps me with my blog now and then, but I think it’s only to safeguard my good reputation. Her website, newsandtales.com, contains some great stories.
